This is excellent- love how the road leads you back into the mountains. The clouds add a lot as well. One little possible suggestion...if this was mine (I wish it was!), I'd crop a bit off the bottom so the widest part of the road would be less dominant. Just a matter of personal taste.

Great shot to show the terrain/environment of the region.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it and I think it is quite an improvement.

A good suggestion to improve an already beautiful scene!  I love the way the road invites the viewer to take that journey into the mountains, with lovely depth and perspective, Gavin.
